This book provides up-to-date guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of sudden death, including sudden cardiac and non-cardiac death. Sudden death (SD) has become a major challenge confronting not only cardiologists, but also specialists in respiratory medicine, endocrine medicine, infectious diseases, etc. Chronic diseases are also among the causes of SD.
This book summarizes the occurrence of
SD, especially in specific groups (such as women, young and middle-aged
groups), its causes, predisposing factors, lifestyle, morbidity, point
of care testing, and advanced treatment methods including
extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and
hypothermia treatment. In order to improve the
early diagnosis, prevention and treatment of SD in clinical
practice, the book also provides extensive data on
its pathophysiological mechanism, epidemiology and
etiology, together with detailed analyses.
